Drawing & Doodling at the Palm House Sefton Park

Posted on


Today I have had a wonderful second visit to the palm house in Sefton park, another glorious sunny day, I think it must always be sunny in Liverpool : )

attended an event hosted by Rachael Taylor and the 'make it in design' team, who run courses for all things surface design. Today they hosted a drawing/doodling work shop based in the palm house for the afternoon.

It was really great to meet the team.  We were given a fantasitc goodie bag containing everything you needed for a session of sketching in the Palm House and even a packet of sweets!

Sooo nice to just sit and draw for an hour or two in the tranquil environment, hushed tones with the occasional giggle of the other doodling artists, accompanied by glorious sunshine the birds singing in the park.

Nearly filling my sketch book with lots of illustrations ready to take home to my work studio for inspiration and to create more designs. 


I have to say you can't beat sketching out doors (or nearly out doors) completely frees up your drawing style!

I had one of the nicest days out and even though my exhaust bracket on my car decided to fall off later that day! it still didnt runin my day.

A big thank you to Rachael Taylor and the Make it in design team for hosting this lovely event.. #sketchdoodledraw : )
